The application was originally filed on January 3rd, 2020, and was published on May 3rd 2022.
The filing does not necessarily mean that a production version is on the way.
First seen at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January then once more at the 2022 New York auto show. Each venue displayed variations of the very attractive Chrysler Airflow Concept. Recently, Chrysler’s patent application for the vehicle was published and it’s left wondering about the EV’s future.
The actual patent application dates all the way back to January 3rd, 2020, a full two years before the concept was ever revealed. The included images clearly depict the vehicle we know as the Airflow Concept. The patent covers “the ornamental design for an automobile,” which may only refer to the Airflow’s overall design.
As we know, Chrysler’s future will call upon EVs, the first one expected in 2025 as noted by Motor Authority. By 2028, Chrysler will have completely transitioned over to selling EVs. We think the Airflow Concept would serve as a good starting point for the brand. It reminds us, in the best possible way, of the original Pacifica SUV. Much like the latter, the Airflow is quietly distinct yet loaded with character.
